    trt740 for overclocking that you like to do I would say around 250-300 would be a better budget.

    When you finally do it you'll find out that it's not.

    it's less than air imo, less dust to clean :)
    other than that, just refill the res from time to time

    Oh and they sell this tubing at Lowe's/Homedepot that has nylon inside of it. I have found it to be the best tubing because you can take hard hard hard turns with it.

    I'm only selling mine because air cooling offers more airflow to my motherboard. Honestly, out of the great air cooling I've used (Enzotech Ultra-X, AC Freezer 7 and Zalman 9700), this watercooling works significantly better on load than any of these.

    I agree. My H20-120 Premium allowed me to run 1.6v thru my 6000+ without breaching 50C. I did put a better fan on it tho. 110cfm Silverstone with a controller.
